“Xena: Warrior Princess” actress Lucy Lawless proudly left court after getting arrested while protesting Shell’s plans to drill in the Arctic. Lawless and six other protesters from Greenpeace spent 77 hours on an oil exploration ship in an attempt to bring light to the dangers the Arctic environment faces if drilling persists.

Lawless and her fellow protesters have to appear in court on May 3, 2012 for counts of burglary. According to NineMSN.com Lawless supported her actions, saying the cause “always felt right.” Originally from New Zealand, Lawless is proud of her involvement against Shell’s oil drilling.

Aftershock from the event has led to support from 376,000 people, and Lawless is proud to be able to inform the public about Shell’s intent. “I don’t think that the world knew that Shell was planning to spearhead this attack on the Arctic. Hundreds of thousands of people have come on board to voice our opposition to the destruction that Shell can wreak in the Arctic,” the actress said.

With the public now informed, Lawless has done what she intended to do. Along with Greenpeace, she has impacted Shell, and people also concerned about future Arctic drilling. “Seven of us climbed that drill ship but now 376,000 people have added their names to the call for Shell to stay out of the Arctic. That figure is growing every day.”
